Title: Video Game figures (Nintendo, Figma, Figuarts, etc)
Post by: Boy Wonder on November 30, 2014, 10:15:51 pm
I'm not sure if anyone else cares about these, but dammit, I'm proud of this little collection I've got going and in going to make a whole thread about it!

I rearranged today after buying another spice shelf. Gave them all more space and integrated Street Fighter in there. I was hesitant for a while because those SOTA figures are so great that I didn't want them to get lost in the shuffle, but I think by keeping them together and still giving them breathing room, I still let them get in their cred. Now to only pray that none of them fall. They seem pretty stable though.

Been amassing these for several years now, but it's really hitting the point that I'm really happy with the variety and quality of the figures. I really wish I had gotten the NES Jason when I had the chance. The NECA Simon Belmont would be sweet too.

I would very much appreciate it if you sent me all those Street Fighter figures.  Thanks.   ;D

Cool stuff, I love that Earthworm Jim figure.

Great collection BW!!

Those SOTA figures are actually pretty good.

Nice setup. Wish I had been able to get the D-Arts Mega Man and Figma Pit.

Mine would be all Bioshock and Tomb Raider

Thanks guys.

I have a LOT more Pokemon that I used to cram in, but there was just too many so I had to scale back. They overwhelmed the whole thing. There's still a good number, but I try to limit it to some favorites and the ones that were in Smash Bros.

Are there any Bo Jackson or Walter Payton figures? I feel like my display could use some Tecmo Bowl love.

Nice!  They really outdid themselves with that SF line.

Post by: B-Lister on December 03, 2014, 04:39:51 pm
I like the new Nintendo 4" line. I just picked up Link. He's no Figma, but he's a damn solid toy.

I hope they do Pit and Ness. Hell, they should have just called it the SSB toyline.


Title: Re: Video Game figure collection
Post by: B-Lister on December 05, 2014, 03:07:03 am
Speaking of, has anybody heRd anything about the next series? I'm hoping for Pit, but not sure he'll be that soon.


Title: Re: Video Game figure collection
Post by: Boy Wonder on December 05, 2014, 07:52:41 am
Fwoosh is supposed to do an interview with Jakks either very soon or it might have already happened and they just haven't gotten the interview up yet. I imagine well get some new info from that, at very least something at Toyfair.

Best case scenario, Jakks realized that they have a huge hit on their hands and expand the line with more resources. I'd LOVE to get guys like Fox, Capt Falcon, Olimar, Wind Waker Link, ROB, and Ness! (if they want to throw more Earthbound characters our way, I wouldn't complain)

I'm sure Kenner did both for SLU.

Me too.

I'm not a hardcore new gamer, but I'm an avid Retrogamer. Capcom always did make quality.

Since this is the official videogame figure thread, just wanted to give a heads up that the blind bagged Mario Bros Lego Style minifigures are $1 each at Wal-Mart.

I bought a bunch last night and got everybody in series 4 except Mario and Bowser Jr.

Got extras of DK, and Luigi if anybody needs 'em.


Title: Re: Video Game figure collection

Really wish Jakks had the right to give us compatible figures of Mega Man, and Shulk from Smash.

Sagat from 1999 still in package.

The ReSaurus figures were nice, but SOTA really stepped it up. They wisely made them Marvel Legends scale with similar articulation, so collectors could rock their fave Marvel Vs. Capcom battles!


Title: Re: Video Game figure collection

Still upset that we never got those Darkstalkers figures.

Been hunting insanely hard for Fox. Still empty handed on him.

But I finally classicfied my Pac Man. Not a perfect paint job, but he'll look fine on the shelf.

Once I find Fox and get him in there I'll take an updated shot. Might wait for Lucina too.

Hey man is that Ash a custom ? seen him in blue but never red ? very nice


Title: Re: Video Game figure collection
Post by: Boy Wonder on September 20, 2015, 10:02:53 pm
Yeah he is, I repainted an Ash to look like the trainer from the games. I'm pretty proud of him, my first big painting job.


Title: Re: Video Game figure collection
Post by: Boy Wonder on February 16, 2016, 11:21:22 pm
Got Kirby today. He's truly incredible. Just perfect.

Got an updated pic, I have a Metroid I need to integrate, but I want to hang it and have it flying, and Metroid is so big and awkward that it'll take a little effort to figure out.


(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v724/BoyWonder92488/372E01EA-5ECD-4B8C-A944-6F161AE1EF87_zpsbezvspst.jpg)

On the horizon we have Meta Knight, TP Link, WW Link, Falco, Greninja, and Arthur. (And of course that awesome blue ninja from Fwoosh that looks just like Ryu Hayabusa).

Someone spoke with our old buddy Touguru from Jakks at Toyfair and he said they're planning on jumping deep into character selection soon. So we'll see what that means.

Title: Re: Video Game figure collection
Post by: Boy Wonder on February 17, 2016, 07:03:44 am
Right now my MOTUC collection takes up the most space in my room because I have them all displayed in a bit more of an elongated action scene. I'm thinking of condensing them into boring shelves and instead attempting to make a giant Smash Bros fight scene with a background and stuff. It's odd that I don't even like MOTU all that much but it dominates my display.


Title: Re: Video Game figure collection
Post by: B-Lister on March 29, 2016, 04:15:08 am
Picked up the Jakks Metroid yesterday, and boy howdy is it an amazing toy!

Still trying to find a solid deal on Figma Pit.


Title: Re: Video Game figure collection
Post by: Boy Wonder on May 22, 2016, 06:17:21 pm
If anyone is at TRU and sees the new Falco and could be kind enough to grab him for me, you'd save me a lot of headache.


Title: Re: Video Game figure collection
Post by: Boy Wonder on August 05, 2016, 09:53:32 pm
Wow, haven't updated this in a while.

So I moved to Columbus and could only bring a small amount of figures with me (don't worry, the rest are at my parents house until I get more space).

So I chose to bring my favorite part of my collection, my video game figures.

Left a good handful of them in KY, but managed to bring the most important ones with me. Heck, I've even added a lot since moving here two months ago.

Just got Slippy, Skull Kid, and Toad over the past 2 days after a lot of searching. I used to have my SNES games where Gengar and Ganondorf are, but moved those to expand out a bit which is why that space isn't very well assembled.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v724/BoyWonder92488/0B05C78B-535C-474C-A658-5F82D29165D8_zpsukjih0ty.jpg)

Who'd have thought I'd love this annoying frog so much? Can't wait for Peppy to come out.

Which reminds me, here's the next wave for the fall

(http://www.videogamemm.com/blog/pics/wonwave8.JPG)

Peppy, Villager, and Koopa are all buys, possibly Mario just for his Star

I'll change the title. Maybe make this thread more inviting so it's not just "LOOK AT BOY WONDER'S COOL STUFF"

Sooo, has anybody ever seen a CASTLEVANIA SIMON BELMONT figure for under 50 bucks!??


Title: Re: Video Game figures (Nintendo, Figma, Figuarts, etc)
Post by: Boy Wonder on August 08, 2016, 04:47:50 pm
That seems to be the high side of what he goes for MOC. I was interested in getting him for a while, but he's too big for me. So if I did ever get one, I'd likely want to customize him on a 6" scaled body.

He's definitely starting to feel like a hole in the collection, in terms of iconic NES titles. Little Mac too. I've got Articulated Icons Shinobi on order since there's about zero chance he wasn't designed with Ryu from Ninja Gaiden in mind.

Well, no BELMONT for me I guess.   :(

It's no big deal.  I've never even played the game...I just thought it was a really cool looking figure.

Updated pic with whatever new additions I've gotten. Just got OOT Ganondorf and a new Lucario in the past week. Lots of good stuff on the horizon in the coming months. Meta Knight, TP Link, Zelda, GnG Arthur, Fwoosh's blue ninja that certainly doesn't infringe on the copyright of Ryu from Ninja Gaiden. Plus whatever Jakks has yet to announce.

Got a new book shelf and vastly underestimated the amount of space I'd need. I'd probably have been ok if I hadn't decided to cram all my Pokémon in there

Maybe it’s just the nature of Post Images to stop working after a while, but here’s some new pics. Just got the Snorlax bank today, Crash Bandicoot, Iggy, Hammer Bro, and Mike Tyson are all coming soon. I don’t know how they’ll all fit. Might have to trim the Pokémon shelf.

Oh trust me, I’ve been trying to figure out how to get that pipe to either stick to the top of the shelf or to the side. I think I have some super strong magnets at my parents house that might help me out.

It's the kind of thing I wouldn't know where to stop with. I'd go to Lowes, buy PVC pipe and fittings, green spray paint. Then I would take all that home, put the bag in my desk area and never get any further.... :D
